We stayed for a couple of days at the Hillwinds Lodge in the heart of the White mountains and loved it. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the location very practical -- two minutes from Highway 93, and very close to all the nice hicking sites. Our hosts are incredibly friendly, making you feel like coming back very soon. The lodge is dog-friendly, so we were able to take our Golden retriever with us, which was a real bonus. For people who do not like dogs, they offer a distinct group of rooms by the river, while dog-friendly rooms are located closer to a wooden trail. They offer a free continental breakfast, and wifi, which is very convenient. We plan to come back during ski season, because the hotel is really close to Cannon mountain, where Olympic winner Bodie Miller grew up skiing.
